    If you boot into safe mode (hammer f8 before the windows loading screen comes up), you should see another Administrator account on the welcome screen, log into that and delete from there

    Sounds like the Admin 1 account is the original setup or FULL administrator account.
    It is NOT advised to delete this one at all.

    You can set admin 2 for a limited account, and rename it if you want. Or, you can create another user account. If you can get into admin 1 by using safemode, then that's probably the main admin account.

    I think you have missed my point.
    You cannot delete the original system administrator account as it is used during the recovery process.

    When you create another account, you can copy admin2's data to that account. You'll have to manually copy the files to the new account, through a file manager like windows explorer. They are under 'documents and settings'... just look for the account names.
